May 2025 New Releases


Release date not known
Wish Upon a K-Star by Kat Cho (Disney Hyperion)
Rebecca Kuss at Disney Hyperion has acquired Wish Upon a K-Star by Kat Cho, a spin-off of her Once Upon a K-Prom, where a PR snafu means WDB idol Moonster must join Korea's most popular fake dating variety show with Seoul's newest K-drama darling in order to get their careers back on track—but what kind of disaster awaits them when they actually start to fall in love? Publication is set for May 2025; Beth Phelan at Gallt and Zacker Literary Agency negotiated the deal for world rights.

May 1st
Sound Check by Jennifer Fenn (Roaring Brook Press) - moved from April 2022, then from July 2023, then from July 2024.

Win is a remarkably gifted percussionist. He's also profoundly deaf and plays the drums with his shoes off so he can feel the music through the soles of his feet. He has it all: he's in a band on the verge of breaking out, and he's madly in love with Tristen, their lead singer. The only thing he could ever want: to hear Tristen sing.

Sound Check is told in alternating narratives. The A side - Win decides to get a cochlear implant that will allow him to hear. The B side - Win and Tristen's love story from the day they first met to the day Win heard Tristen for the first time. And in the silence between the tracks? Heartbreak.
